As part of biodiversity week, Tuddy Clifford (Bee Education & Health Officer) and Ulrich Schraewer (Chairman) of the Beaufort Beekeepers Association gave a talk on beekeeping and the importance of the honey bee.
The presentation contained an entertaining slide show, the display of a bee hive and the showing of the observation hive. To begin the audience was challenged to identify the honey bee on various pictures (incl. wasps and solitary bees) of bees. The difference between wasps and bees was clarified.
The audience had a real chance to dive into the amazing world of bees by viewing spectacular pictures of bees & pollen and of course the live bees in the observation hive. Ulrich and Tuddy told astonishing stories on bees, the way the communicate (perform a waggle dance) and fly hundred-thousands of miles to collect nectar for honey.
